The Way It Was After Camille
Living a 2+ hour drive north of the MS coast, I remember Camille frighteningly well. This Navy Dept. film of the Navy Seabees (who were based there on the coast & suffered major damage to their own facilities) gives a clearer picture of the destruction Camille inflicted than any other government or news organization report. Imagine Katrina, but with only 1969 technology to respond!
